Brooklyn Botanical in Spring

This entry wraps up the spring trip to the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens. I walked around several times, taking a break for food and then heading back to areas, so the order of the shots might seem wonky at times. It was a great day with lots of sunlight and various light plays throughout the day. After the early school crowds, it really emptied out for the remainder of the day.

Hunkering in the shade can give you a more interesting image than just straight forward.
